Strawberry Rhubarb Pie Cocktail by Champagne and Sugarplums

This cocktail is named after strawberry rhubarb pie because its reminiscent of the popular pie filling. We added club soda to give it a perfect fizz, after all, what’s summer without fizzy drinks? It also helps dilute the sweetness of the syrup. If you prefer a sweeter cocktail add syrup to taste. Making the syrup ahead of time is a great idea, then simply store unused portions in jars in the fridge. This recipe makes about 3 cups of syrup. If you’re making it for a group, triple the recipe below and serve in a pretty pitcher.

Time Saver Tip – Make the strawberry rhubarb syrup ahead of time and use it as needed!

Making the syrup for these cocktails takes the longest, yet its still easy. Once you have chopped the strawberries and rhubarb, boil them down with some sugar. Then, using a fine strainer or cheese cloth, strain the pulp to extract the syrup.
